Club Opening

As a certified club opener, you have the privilege of sharing the gift of Kiwanis. You bring new opportunities to children in communities where clubs open. You inspire new members to look at their communities with fresh eyes. And you help nurture the next generation. 

Working with the club coaches and the lieutenant governor in your division, you lead the process of opening new clubs in your division. You’ll identify potential sites, develop strategies and create a timetable for opening new clubs.
